Anza-Borrego Desert Park: Fonts Point Sunrise & Sunset, Lower Willows Trail

Fonts Point in the Anza-Borrego State Park is a great place to view both sunrise and sunset. At 1,253′ elevation, it looks down on the Borrego Badlands, and you can even see a sliver of the Salton Sea, to the east. The road in is four miles of dirt and fairly deep sand in spots, so passenger cars do tend to get stuck pretty regularly.

If you are looking for a nice hike in the Anza-Borrego park, there is the Lower Willows Trail, which is located in an area that is fed year-round by the Santa Catarina Spring. To get there, you leave the town of Borrego Springs on the DiGiorgio Road, going towards Coyote Canyon. Here are links for more info.

These Anza-Borrego desert photos were shot with a Sony a7R and an old Olympus 28mm f/3.5 film camera lens.
